Impressive determination to survive
O’Brien would not have survived without unusual stamina, ability to endure physical pain, willingness to kill if necessary, wit and cautious nature that warned him of danger, and his refusal to give in adverse circumstances. Combined with his extraordinary mental and physical strength—O’Brien always had luck on his side.
